jQuery event handling best practice

Anonymous functions are usually used extensively in jQuery events handling, however, anonymous functions are difficult to debug, maintain, test, or reuse.

A better way is to use object literals as in this example:


$(document).ready(function() {  
  $('.status .delete').click(function(e) { //Do something });  
  $('.status').dblclick(function(e) { //Do the same thing });

var bindingObject = { 
onReady : function() { 
  $('.status .delete').click(bindingObject.deleteTweet);    
deleteTweet : function(e) { //Do something }
